Pointing Breed Rescue in Canada

This is a new site for a new group. We're trying to organize and set up a pointing breed rescue organization with the goal of being a registered charity. For those not familiar with the pointing breeds they are the all purpose gun dogs. The group includes the English Pointer, the Brittany Spaniel, the 3 German Pointers (Shorthaired, Wirehaired & Longhaired), Vizslas, Weimareiners, Italian Spinones, the 4 Setters (Irish, English, Gordon, Irish Red & White) and the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. There are other breeds but for the most part they are very rare here in Canada.

On this site I hope to be able to update this site regularly not only with our progress with the organization but also to regularly list dogs available both for fostering and to permanent homes.

The organization is still in the preliminary stages and we are currently working on putting together a Board of Directors. We are in need of people who are interested in assisting both on the Board and also with the organization in general. As with all rescue operations, foster homes will definitely be needed. With respect to the Board, we are in particular need for people with legal and accounting skills.
